Bronchiolitis obliterans is a rare but well-recognised bronchopulmonary manifestation associated with IBD. This case report is unusual in  the  severity  of  the  respiratory  disease, requiring  referral  for  consideration  of lung transplantation with further implications in the clinical management of severe UC. We   have   reviewed   the   literature   concerning   bronchopulmonary manifestations  of  IBD  and  discuss  the  difficulties  in  distinguishing  between  a primary manifestation associated with IBD and a side-effect of drug therapy.
